Ed is having a hard time - at work, in his love life and, well, generally. Then he meets an unlikely Buddhist - who drinks and smokes and talks his kind of language. Bit by bit, things begin to change...Ed doesn't always take Geoff's advice. Or, when he does he lapses at the crucial moment. His path to understanding is t a straight one, especially as life keeps throwing more and more 'stuff' at him. Often he fails - like most of us, in fact. But sometimes he manages to get it right. And when he does, surprising things begin to happen ...In The Buddha, Geoff and Me Edward Canfor-Dumas brings all his skills to bear in an absorbing story of everyday city life, where the characters stand out with all their human strengths and weaknesses, and the ending brings Ed - and perhaps all of us? - a hope we didn't necessarily expect. The Buddha, Geoff and Me - for anyone who's ever begun to wonder what the whole damn thing is all about .
Eddy Canfor-Dumas was educated at New College, Oxford, where he started writing and directing. His TV work includes Not The Nine O'Clock News, The Bill, Kavanagh QC, Tough Love, Pompeii: The Last Day and Supervolcano. He is much in demand, and puts all of his success down to his Buddhist practice, which not only continues to help him generate ideas, but also gives him the energy to carry them out. He lives with his wife and two children in Hertfordshire.
